Chris Coleman

Well, it's all been kicking off since the end of the international break, hasn't it? What better way to mark the return of top flight games than to ignore its existence for a significant portion of a podcast that's supposed to cover the game as diversely as possible? This week's Football Fives Podcast is a three-hander, it's an 'anything goes' episode, and here it is.

With Daniel Storey unable to join us, the intrepid trio of David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee voyage through the choppy waters of the football matters of the day. We ask whether Manchester City should expect to win more than just the Premier League, and discuss the end of Chris Coleman's own international break. Is Sunderland a backwards step?

There's a chat about whether club managers are right to complain when their players come back injured from international friendlies, a batch of rash and ill-informed predictions ahead of next summer's FIFA World Cup, and a very lovely nod to some very lovely goals, all scored by the one and only John Barnes.

The Football Fives Podcast is back with no apologies for missing last week - what we did instead was a lot of fun, so there - and Ryan Keaney's late withdrawal means that he misses out on one of our occasional 'blind' episodes, in which one of our number brings a subject to the table that the others do not know in advance, and ask the traditional five questions thereupon.

This time, it's even trickier. Dave Hartrick is in the chair and he's got a shiny new idea: pulling a team out of a hat and talking about them, so even he didn't know what Daniel Storey and Chris Nee would be discussing. Yes, twohundredpercent did it and did it better. And while Dave protests his innocence, at least one of the others remains suspicious.

The unlucky team out of the pot after an aborted first effort is Tottenham Hotspur, whose past, present and future therefore become the talking points of this week's show. Something approaching normal service will be resumed in due course.

Thursday (or Friday, or whatever) means it's time for a new episode of the Football Fives Podcast, and this week it's a whole new format for the show as well. We've got five questions - that's one corner into which we've painted ourselves irretrievably - but the subject at hand is the first in what we hope will be a series of season reviews.

Being kids of the 1990s, working our way through that decade year by year was the only way we could approach it, so this week's show focuses on the 1990/91 season. Within, we ask five questions about the season and the big stories and moments within, and establish just how much at least three of us don't remember.

Chris Nee's in the host's chair and navigates Daniel Storey, David Hartrick and Ryan Keaney through a discussion about the headlines from 1990/91, the best goals, the retrospective surprises and the forgotten players that deserve a mention in 2017. And, of course, we assess the performance of our own teams. Go!
